Kylie Jenner Lip Kit: Reality Star Turned Entrepreneur Talks Inspiration Behind Her Brand

Kylie Jenner may still be a teenager — but that doesn’t mean she isn’t running an empire!

With what started as a pretty basic idea — a “lip kit” comprising of a lipstick with a matching liner — her passion project has grown to what we now know as Kylie Cosmetics, a full makeup line that offers way more than Ky’s signature overdrawn, matte lips.

“I always knew I wanted to create my own lipstick,” she said. “I said, ‘We need to trademark Kylie Lip Kit’ — that was what I wanted to call it.”

In the interview, Kylie insisted she was “obsessed with lips in general,” even before she famously got lip injections — adding her own hang up on liner inspired her to make the kits.

“Usually, when girls do their lipstick, they use a lip liner and a lipstick, and they never have a match,” she explained. “So I just created a perfect match because that’s what I’ve always wanted.”

And there’s no denying Kylie is passionate about her lip stick.

“If I look in my bag and there’s not lipstick, I’m like, ‘What am I going to do with no lipstick?’” she joked. “I NEED lipstick!”
